Obituary for James Larry Kersey, Sr.

Perry, GA – James Larry Kersey, Sr., 63, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at the Perry Hospital.

Larry was born on October 2, 1956 in Hawkinsville, GA to the late James Robert and Doris (Akin) Kersey. He was a 1974 graduate of Perry High School. Larry was a very hardworking man who always provided for his family. He was a skilled mechanic where he worked for many years at Chancy Auto but in his later years was self-employed. Larry loved hunting; his passion was deer hunting. He said being in the woods was his sanctuary, where he had his most intimate conversations with God. Family was very important to him as well. He dearly loved his wife, son, daughter and grandkids. His grandkids knew him as “Pop”. He also loved his best buddy, Max, his American Bulldog.
Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife of 40 years, Kimberly (Langston) Kersey of Perry, GA; son: James Larry Kersey, Jr. (Tammy) of Perry, GA; daughter: Genny Brand (Russell) of Perry, GA; 6 grandchildren: Abigail, John, Jacob, Katelyn, Austin and Lindsay; sisters: Pat Bowen (Jesse) and Linda Spinks both of Warner Robins, GA.

Our sincere condolences to all of Mr. Larry’s family. We had the pleasure of seeing and talking to Mr. Larry several times a week for more than a decade as he worked on our inventory. Mr. Larry was always straightforward, honest and positive. We all loved hearing his stories of his hunts, what he was doing with the grand babies, stories of James Jr. climbing on the roof as a young child, Kim bringing home Genny for the first time and so much more! He loved to share stories about the things and people he loved! He will be missed greatly by everyone at Carlos and Bj Auto Sales!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Kersey family. I had the privilege of knowing Larry for 30 something years. My last visit with Larry was just a couple weeks ago after he worked on my truck. I sat on the front porch and we shared stories of hunting together and had some laughs. There never was a time that i saw Larry without leaving with a smile and a positive frame of mind. I will take the memories of our friendship with me for ever. My hopes for his family is that they find comfort in knowing what a very special man he truly was.
